Tulsa, Okla. Native Zeke Duhon is a bit of a wunderkind. Raised in a musical family listening to the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles and Eric Clapton, Duhon had written his first song by age 13 and within two years had recorded his first EP and opened a local show for Never Shout Never.
His latest effort is a self-titled EP that gives every indication that the kid is a player on the pop/rock scene. Within a few months of relocating to Nashville, Duhon had signed a major publishing deal and landed Grammy-winning producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars) to helm his next project. yes, life is good for Zeke Duhon.
“Recordings this EP with one of my heroes was surreal and inspiring,” Duhon explains. “Charlie Peacock helped create my favorite bands from childhood and having his touch on these songs that are so dear to me really added that extra oomph. I’m so excited for the world to connect to these experiences through recorded songs, and through my live performances face to face in the upcoming months.
The centerpiece of the six-track, 24-minute platter is lead single “Faith and Hope,” with Duhon also delivering the goods on “Gravity (Time to Run),” “Everything” and “Best Mistake.” The sky appears to be the limit for this talented youngster. (Jeffrey Sisk)
